Chris Matthews has a giant head on Family Guy (and in real life)

by Bob Sassone, posted Dec 1st 2009 5:02PM
This is an amusing clip from Sunday's episode of Family Guy. It's one of those pop culture flashbacks that the show does and has Chris Matthews and his giant head, talking over and interrupting his guest just like he does in real life. Special bonus: an appearance by someone from That 70s Show!

Family Guy: Peter's Progress (season finale) - open thread

by Bob Sassone, posted May 18th 2009 10:02AM
Family GuyIf you missed Family Guy last night, you missed Peter having sex with his daughter Meg. OK, OK, it was all part of one of those "let's use the characters of this show to tell a story about long ago," so they weren't really father and daughter, but once you see that, you can't unsee it. They also killed the cast of How I Met Your Mother with arrows (the first of two How I Met Your Mother jokes on FOX last night - American Dad had one too).

I think we all could have done without those very unfunny "Stewie interviews Eminem" spots scattered throughout the evening.

New promo explains more about The Cleveland Show

I think Stewie expresses the shock that a lot of people have when they find out that this character from Family Guy is the one that's getting a spinoff (you'd think Stewie or Brian would get one first, but I guess that would take them away from the Griffins and that obviously can't happen). If the writing is good, this could actually be quite good (and controversial).

What You Missed Last Night: Family Guy does Misery

by Bob Sassone, posted May 11th 2009 1:44PM
Actually, maybe this should be titled "What I Missed Last Night," as I didn't catch Family Guy (or The Simpsons or 60 Minutes or the Red Sox/Rays game). Stupid power outage. Anyway, here's a scene (episode also here) from last night's episode of Family Guy. I have no idea why Stewie is dressed as Kathy Bates and I don't know why Brian is James Caan, but the ending of this clip is really bizarre.

Don't Forget! Stewie Griffin guest stars on Bones tonight

Yup, that's right, the evil baby from Family Guy is going to guest star on Bones tonight. Here's a clip from the episode if you don't want to wait (or you don't watch the show but you're still curious as to how the heck they're going to get an animated baby into a live action drama).

What You Missed Last Night: Murder and drugs on Family Guy

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 20th 2009 9:22AM
If you missed last night's episode of Family Guy, Brian got arrested for having a bag of pot on him (he does drugs and he's an atheist!), and Peter stabbed a cat to death. Enjoy!

Stewie kidnaps the cast of Star Trek: TNG this Sunday

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 26th 2009 5:17PM
Family GuyIf this clip is any indication, this could be one of the funniest Family Guy episodes ever (at least for Star Trek fans).

The entire cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation lend their voices to the episode, which features Stewie going to a Trekkie (er, sorry, Trekker I guess they like to be called) convention and not being able to ask the group a question. So he does a very Stewie-like thing and kidnaps the entire cast.

The Parents Television Council doesn't like Family Guy (duh) - VIDEO

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 11th 2009 1:00PM
Family GuyThe Parents Television Council has added FOX's Family Guy to the list of shows it's going after.

They are filing another complaint with the FCC, this time over last Sunday's episode of the cartoon that featured (from the PTC complaint) "bestiality, orgies, and babies eating sperm." By sheer coincidence, this was the same plot as the latest episode of The Hills.

Actually, I was kinda shocked by the episode myself, but I'm always shocked by episodes of Family Guy. That's what makes it funny.

How do you get to Carnegie Hall? Poop jokes, poop jokes, poop jokes!

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 11th 2008 5:03PM
Family GuyThis news sounds like it could be an episode of Family Guy, but actually it's going to be two episodes of Family Guy.

The show has booked two evenings at Carnegie Hall. The cast and crew from the show will perform two uncensored episodes of the show, along with various musical numbers. It's called Family Guy Sings! and will run on November 24 and 25.

The show has done these shows before, at the Just For Laughs festival in Montreal and cities around the U.S., but hey, this Carnegie Hall! I think it would be funny if the place insisted that everyone dress in black tie and formal dress.

This seems to be a trend. During the writers strike, the cast of 30 Rock did a staged reading of one of their episodes. Maybe this is something that TV shows can do during the off-season, when the shows are in repeats. I wonder what 24 would be like on Broadway?

Family Guy: Long John Peter (season finale) - VIDEO

by Brad Trechak, posted May 4th 2008 10:39PM
Long John Peter(S06E12) As a result of adopting (and by adopting, I mean bird-napping) a parrot from the veterinarian's office, Peter becomes a pirate. The sad part was that it wasn't even International Talk-Like-A-Pirate Day.

Actually, that's not really what the episode is about. It's more about Chris' pursuit of a vet intern named Anna. While Chris' pursues Anna, he gets advice from Peter and the gang (which, as the history of the show has proven, is never a good idea).

The pirate segment of the episode wasn't very good and seemed out of place. Fortunately, it was very short. Despite its use in the promos, it was kind of forgettable. I did enjoy the car chase bit involving "sugar cane, tobacco and spices". The car chase itself seemed like something of a cross between a pirate movie and a video-game.

Family Guy: The Former Life of Brian - VIDEO

by Brad Trechak, posted Apr 28th 2008 1:11AM
Family Guy(S06E11) Brian learns that he had an illegitimate 13-year-old child from a previous relationship (voiced by Harvey Fierstein). The child is dropped off at the Griffin household and Brian now has to raise him.

It should be noted that this season has been shortened to 12 episodes, most likely due to the writer's strike. The season finale will be shown next week. The remaining unfinished episodes will be part of next season's broadcast.

Coca-Cola: "Dueling Parade Balloons"

by Richard Keller, posted Feb 3rd 2008 10:09PM

Underdog and Stewie battle it out for a bottle of Coke

On a cool Thanksgiving morning old (Underdog) and new (Stewie from Family Guy) parade balloons battle it out for a inflatable bottle of Coca-Cola. As they cross the skyline of New York City fists fly and heads are butted. But, in the end, neither is the one who claims the prize. That honor goes to the honorable Charlie Brown, who seems to have finally won something in his life.

This was a cute and gentle commercial by Cola-Cola, which rarely disappoints when it comes to Super Bowl ads. I never realized that the Underdog and Stewie Thanksgiving Day balloons had such angry looks on their faces. That was an advantage in this commercial as we saw the two balloons battling it out. I enjoyed when Underdog slammed Stewie against the building. Nice job overall.

Family Guy: Movin' Out (Brian's Song)

by Brad Trechak, posted Sep 30th 2007 10:40PM

Family Guy logo(S06E02) This is the 100th episode of Family Guy (if the three edited-for-TV episodes of Stewie Griffin: the Untold Story are counted). Not bad for a show that was canceled for a few years.

The plot involves Brian moving in with his vapid sometimes-girlfriend Jillian (voiced by Drew Barrymore). Stewie then joins them to help with the rent. Meanwhile, Meg gets a job at a convenience store and helps Chris get a job there which leads to bad repercussions.

Telly Savalas "sings" - VIDEO

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 23rd 2007 10:25AM

SavalasOK, so we've all seen that surreal video of William Shatner "singing" Elton John's "Rocketman" at the 1978 Science Fiction Awards (and Stewie's version), but I bet you probably haven't seen Kojak taking a shot at Bread's "If."

I'm not sure what's scarier: Telly Savalas coming off as Blofeld trying to sing a love song (it's like he's going to announce his plans for world domination, but he has to sing this ode to his girlfriend first) or the giant head of the actress who is on the screen in back of Savalas. It must have been kind of odd to be her, just being told to "just stand there and look like Loretta Swit's sister." Full video after the jump!

Carol Burnett suing Fox over Family Guy

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 16th 2007 3:01PM

Carol BurnettThis isn't a very good day for companies under the Fox banner. First Zsa Zsa's husband, and now this.

Veteran comedienne Carol Burnett is suing Twentieth-Century Fox because they used her animated "charwoman" character (the cleaning lady with the mop and bucket from The Carol Burnett Show) in an April, 2006 episode without her permission. She's asking for $2 million.

I think I have to start taking law classes or something, if these celebrity lawsuits keep coming at this pace. I think I remember this episode. It showed the charwoman as the maid at a porn shop. If the show can be sued for pop culture references like this, the lawsuits will never end, since the show has about 20 of them in every episode, and some aren't too flattering.
